In this series of articles on Universal Law we will explore the laws, or a subset of them, and understand how we should work with them and how violations of them can impact our lives Enfamil’s cow milk based infant formulas. This installment will focus on ten laws that will give you a solid foundation and understanding of the Laws and how you can begin to take control of your life and manifest your own reality.

1. THE LAW OF KARMA

The Law of Karma states that we, as humans, are responsible for all of our actions, and hence, must make payment for any action committed that results in negative consequences for oneself or others. Also known as the” law of cause and effect”, this law is irrevocable and is the key to maintaining balance in the Universe. So when we stray from righteous action, we know to expect justice. This law also applies to our positive actions, and must be understood if we are to begin to grab hold of our lives and guide ourselves toward our soul’s true destiny.

If you have seen “My Name is Earl”, you will see an excellent example of how one man interprets his life’s actions and his attempt to equalize his bad actions so that life will begin to flow in a positive way. While incredibly humorous, it is not far off from truth. One of the most important things that people need to grasp about this law is that Karma does not necessarily seek balance immediately, nor will its response correlate exactly to the action you took. For example, every bad thing Earl did was not equalized by Karma immediately, in fact his debt accumulated and then when he won the lottery – wham, karma got him.

So timing is not going to be precise with Karma. Often times, Karma will seek balance when things are going well and you are doing the right thing, and, it is the reason why you may find yourself shaking your fist in the air and saying “why God”. The reality is, those negative occurrences in our lives are a result of some action we did days, weeks, months, years or even lifetimes ago, and because our memories are short term, we forget about our past actions and usually go into despair over our own self-created situation.

2. THE LAW OF THOUGHT

This Law states that thought precedes all creation, and hence, energy follows thought; energy needs only to be guided by thought and the process of creation begins.

OK, let’s think about this one. Nothing exists until our mind says it does. Wow! That is a powerful concept. But think about it, if someone told an American settler in 1850 that man would travel to the moon or that we would travel around the world in metal canisters up in the sky and make it from Boston to California in less than 6 hours, they would think you were certifiable. Our mind must conceive of an idea and put energy to it in order for it to manifest in our physical world.

3. THE LAW OF MANIFESTATION

The Law of Manifestation, also known as the Law of Attraction, requires that we believe in the principle that “what we need for our evolution will be supplied by the Universe”.

If what we desire and ask for is worthy, and we believe it is available to us when we ask for it, then it will be delivered. The key to applying this law is to find an appropriate method of making the request. And it must harm no one. This means it must have absolutely no negative impact on any party, directly or indirectly. Otherwise Karmic debt comes into play.

This is the root of what we as humans believe are miracles and why prayer is so powerful. If you ask for, believe, visualize, focus and act, the Universe will deliver! It really is that simple, the gotcha is usually tied to our ability to really believe. When you are in the depths of poverty, and everyone around you is in despair, it can be very difficult to believe that you simply need to believe your way out of poverty. Yet it does happen and happen often.

4. THE LAW OF RESPECT

The Law of Respect requires that we truly understand our actions and our requests and is the key to making appropriate requests for manifestation. This is not the respect we think of on a day to day basis, but the respect that understands what it truly means when we say “harm no one” and “respect all life”.

You must look deep within yourself and understand the impact of your actions. This is most often evidenced when we comment after a negative occurrence, “well it was not my intention”, but the “outcome is the outcome” and can’t be taken back, and you are responsible. Work with the Law of Respect, and the secrets of the Universe will be revealed to you, and life will become bliss and ecstasy. Follow the trail of your action to its conclusion for everyone impacted, directly and indirectly, and you will understand your level of respect in the situation.

5. THE LAW OF GRATITUDE

The Law of Gratitude states that energy follows a defined path, so when it is generated it travels out on the arc line of the Universe and must return to its origin. So it is written.

This can be a tough one to grasp. I often have students challenge me when I tell them to be grateful for everything, the good and the bad; that in gratitude, negativity can be undone. This is the reason why…gratitude generates positive energy and with it, returns to the originator untold gifts from the Divine Realms. So when we are grateful and remain positive in a negative situation, the energy we create can undo the negative, because positive energy is exponentially more powerful than negative energy. And, it is the reason why when we express our gratitude sincerely for the “good things” in our lives, we receive even more “good things”. So when bad things happen, remember to thank God, thank Spirit, thank your Creator, thank the Universe…it works!!!

6. THE LAW OF THE VACUUM

The Law of the Vacuum states that the Universe cannot tolerate a void (think of a black hole) and hence when it finds one it will fill it, being cognizant of this is critical to working with it. This is the key to how our world gets out of control.

Think about how your mind works when you are not focused and concentrating on something…do not your thoughts come crashing down upon you? And then think about how it works when you have a million things to do. I know I am infinitely more productive when I am busy; I seem to be able to take on ten more projects. Take on too much and I don’t realize I am on the edge of a crash. Yet, when I am not working and relaxing, the day slips by and I say “where did all the time go”.

Another good example of this law in action is reflected in our relationships. Have you ever been in a relationship that wasn’t working, but you stayed because you were afraid of being alone. This fear and attachment to what we have, prevents us from making the space and movement in our lives for something new and better.

This law points us towards balance…if there is too much space chaos ensues, not enough and we get stuck. The vacuum creates movement. So, when we step on the Path, what do we do? We get unstuck or unattached. When we step on the Path, we are usually at a point in our lives where life isn’t working for us, we are ready to let go of something in order to effect change in our lives. This decision creates space, and the more we work on ourselves, the more the Universe creates movement and begins to fill the void. Move too fast on the path and the vacuum will bring in more than you can handle and chaos ensues.

By understanding and working with this law one can actually begin to take control of life and allow your new reality to emerge. When we work with this law properly we also expend the least amount of energy to get the change to occur. How often do we hear people say, “Why does life have to be so hard?” Well I am here to tell you it doesn’t. So keep in mind, when your actions are correct…or filled with Light…then the vacuum will fill the void with Light filled life at a pace that the human mind can tolerate.

7. THE LAW OF MONEY

You say, “finally we get to the good stuff”. Not so fast…it is all good stuff, and, money is just another symbol for energy; a container so to speak and what we use to create it is attached to it. Hence when we receive and do not share, the law of Poverty will eventually kick in. But if we reap, with the purpose of giving back, then the Law of 10 Fold return kicks in. Money received in alignment to all the preceding laws will reap nothing but positive things into your life. Money not properly earned or abused, once earned, will bring negative consequences into your life.

8. THE LAW OF POVERTY

Poverty is an energy container just like money is. The Law of Poverty has many layers to it. Poverty can mean lack of money, health, success, happiness…you get the picture.

b. I don’t deserve it -Those who work hard, but don’t feel deserving of what they reap, will remain in a state of poverty. Have you ever felt guilty when you do well and have more than someone else? If you feel bad about what you have, you will never receive what you truly deserve…no matter how hard you work.

c. The World owes me — Those who feel justified in being idle and not working for what they want in life and simply take from others what does not belong to them, either literally or figuratively. This includes taking credit for other people’s ideas and or work.

d. Blessed and don’t know it – Oh, and what of those who are blessed with good fortune, be it money, health, happiness, etc. (and perhaps blessings that were earned in previous lifetimes) and they misuse these blessings by not understanding what they have truly been given in this lifetime, thereby generating another go on the karmic wheel of life. Have you ever met someone who has it all and does not appreciate it or even know it?

e. Scrooge — Those who have it all, know it and keep it to themselves. We know the expression, “penny wise and pound foolish”, this is them.

f. Attached — What about those who become overly attached to an idea or way of life, you know, “can’t see the forest for the trees”. I once had a client who came to me and told me that a psychic told her she would meet a new man in her life and that he would be blond. She then became so fixated on looking for that man, that when the Universe sent her a man and he was tall, dark and handsome, she let him go. What a shame!

g. The self-fulfilling prophesy — Those poor souls who believe they have been cursed in this life or feel unworthy. They truly manifest their beliefs.

h. The Victim -The person who is a victim of collective karma, being born into poverty or into an impoverished nation, for example.

i. The Shadow Knows –Those whose subconscious has buried guilt and shame so deeply, that the person cannot find their way out of the poverty they are in without help. If you are in poverty, and do not see yourself on the list, this is most likely your root cause.

j. Looking in all the wrong places — And finally there are those who feel that prosperity is external and look for it outside of themselves and do not realize the shift they must make within.

9. THE LAW OF TENFOLD RETURN

Ahh now this is a good one… And one of the best reasons for living within the Law. This Law states that when you give (of your time, money, love, etc.) with spiritually pure intentions, the Universe will return to you a fortune equal to or greater than ten fold the original gift. This Law works beautifully with the Law of the Vacuum and is the foundation of high magic. Ever wonder why some people have all the luck…

10. THE LAW OF CO-CREATION

And finally we come to the Law of Co-Creation, which states the power of exponential return. Where two work together, they have the power of four, and hence 10 have the power of 100. You get the picture.

And this, my dear friends, is the reason why I believe “you can change the world”.
